" Lest We Forget "
Batstones Memorials were honoured to be a part of the commemoration marking 100 years of the laying of the Mowbray Park Memorial Foundation Stone. Having built the original memorial in 1916, our family were humbled to see the statue and memorial plaques of one of Brisbane's oldest memorials taking pride of place in this ceremony of remembrance for fallen Queensland Soldiers. " It is an honour to mark 100 years since the laying of the Foundation Stone of this memorial to those who served in the First World War. It says a great deal about Queenslanders and our fidelity to the memory of the fallen, that this fine memorial, built in stone, endures today. " Governor of Queensland
